Infographic: Identifying the threat and countering it: Europe's drone conundrum - based on worldwide survey results
What is Europe’s view on the use of commercial drones in the civilian airspace? Other than the military applications such as surveillance and potential threat detection (chemical for instance), drones are increasingly being used in a broad range of activities including: imagery, environmental monitoring, agriculture, mapping, infrastructure inspection and emergency services. The sky will soon be buzzing and the concern now is to ensure civilian safety and security through technological and legislative means. We asked European drone experts from a broad range of industries to provide their insight on the increasing use of commercial drones and the issues this generates ahead of the first Countering Drones LIVEdemo conference in Geneva, Switzerland.
The increasing use of drones in the civil airspace poses not only a threat, but also creates new challenges for regulatory bodies across all member nations. How are they preparing to a market that is set to increase exponentially in the upcoming years? What measures are currently in place to accomodate drones in a sky full of manned aviation instruments? Ahead of the inaugural Countering LIVEdemo conference, we asked Mike Lissone, Agency RPAS manager at EUROCONTROL & Secretary General at Joint Authorities for Rulemaking on Unmanned Systems (JARUS) to give us his expert insight on these challenges.
